liam76: mbillips: The IRA are full of crap. Northern Ireland is majority Protestant, and the majority WANT to remain part of the U.K. There was a lot of anti-Catholic oppression in Northern Ireland that led to the Troubles, but there's no legitimacy to the argument that Northern Ireland is "occupied." When the land was confiscated from Catholics, it was taken from hereditary nobles who inherited it from people who conquered it with the sword. You can't biatch about other nobility kicking your nobility's ass; that's what nobles doI agree with the sentiment that it was long enough ago, however the fighing for Ireland when England was taking it over wasn't noble vs noble.
Farce-Side: When we were in middle school, a buddy's family had two Irish girls come stay at his house for the summer, one protestant and one catholic. Sort of a "Look how tolerant America is" exchange type deal. They got along great with each other, but everybody else thought they were total biatches, and shunned them socially.
Carn: edmo: Religions of Peace?Don't be silly, only evil muslims kill each other and blow people up. It's not like there's a catholic terrorist organization or anything.
